Joe Buck Claims He Was Being Sarcastic When He Mocked The Military Fltover Prior To Bills-Chiefs

Joe Buck and Troy Aikman have been in hot water all week after a hot mic caught them bashing the military flyover. Take a listen.

After Troy Aikman gave a half-hearted apology, Buck felt the need to speak out. Here’s what Joe Buck said today on his podcast, Daddy Issues.

“So I see this, and Troy in the microphone is repeating something that he heard the night before from an unnamed person on our crew. This person happens to be very far left and said, ‘Well, under Biden-Harris, you know that’s not going to happen,’ and Troy was repeating that watching the flyover. So they clipped that as if he’s saying that and as if he’s a Harris-Biden fan. But he’s repeating something that somebody said the night before, which is unbelievable. If you know Troy at all, he was being 100 percent sarcastic. Repeating for the person in the truck to hear, like ‘Ha, ha, ha.’ And then I go into a 1950s voice, like, ‘There’s your hard-earned tax dollars at work,’ or whatever.”


Buck went on to say, “Again, repeating parts of conversations to our crew and they clipped that and then run a headline that Troy Aikman and Joe Buck bash flyovers, which it had nothing to do with any of that.”

“It was a political conversation amongst our group that somebody clipped and sold for the exact reason that we’re doing this. And it stirs people up. And words get weaponized. And then people have to weigh in. ‘Oh, well, screw those guys. They don’t like the military.’ WHAT?!”

I’ll leave it to you guys to decide whether you want to believe Joe Buck’s explanation or not. I will say that it would be incredibly detailed if the whole thing isn’t true.

Nevertheless, Buck and Aikman will most likely face no repercussions for their comments. Buck is currently prepping to call Thursday Night Football between the Eagles and Giants.

Between the World Series and NFL, Joe Buck will be calling a nationally televised game every single day this week. Guys living the dream. Let’s just hope he knows when he’s off-air.
